The Society of Women Engineers at UCLA (SWE) hosted their third annual Engineers for Professional Equality Conference (EPEC) on Saturday, April 8 in Kerckhoff Grand Salon.
With the low percentages of marginalized groups in STEM fields, both at UCLA and throughout the United States, it is important to discuss the personal experiences that may be fueling those numbers. Discussing the different situations that people of different social identities face is the first step in taking action for tangible change.
Stamps with the words “I Am” and “You Are” were provided with blank cards to encourage participants to describe themselves and their friends in a positive way. The prompts were meant to help participants see themselves as more than their weight and more than a number.
UCLA’s Student Health Advisory Committee is offering free, confidential STI testing through February 28th.
As part of their fourth annual Consent Week, the Bruin Consent Coalition (BCC) set up a miniature version of the UCLA Clothesline Project in the Kerckhoff Art Gallery. The project, on display from Jan. 17-20, featured a collection of shirts decorated by survivors of sexual assault.
